Vote now in the Bloody Elbow Baddest Tournament to determine the Greatest MMA Light Heavyweight of All Time. Today's match-up: #1 Jon Jones vs #1 Shogun Rua. Vote now!

Pride Never Die? Maybe not. But today at least, it took a serious hit. UFC Light Heavyweight great and tournament #1 seed Chuck Liddell defeated his Pride counterpart, tournament #3 seed Wanderlei Silva. The Iceman took the win by a score of 33-23. With that, Chuck moves on to the finals. His opponent? Well that’s what we’re here for today.

Today, finalist #2 will be named. And like Chuck vs. Wanderlei, it’s a fight that we’ve seen in the real world, but here, there are some new wrinkles to consider. #1 Jon Jones vs #1 Mauricio Rua. So far, Shogun has been dominating, with none of his opponent even scoring in the double digits, while Jones has been escaping by narrow margins right from the beginning. Will this be the round where he falls or will he pull it off again?
